After one hour to do the turn of interesting palm (because suddenly x went to right in place of left, and inversely :hypno: ) I obtained a not bad at all shape. But it's all. After I can't continue with holes and curves of palm :shock:
So my only way is to look like you the frame of other column :panic: That is a lot of faces, mainly tri-faces.


The base should be much easier to handle, unless you take J's advice :sake:  Lol!!
You wouldn't model the tri-faces, that can be added on export. I tried again and the Column model does load into wings3d if you wait long enough, I separated just the top part and it is made up of 714 separate pieces!!! :fainting: This is crazy stuff - lol!

:panic:
No, I prefer quads indeed. But just the stalk for one palm is a pain. After a night of rest, now W3d decides if I continue to "sweep" that X=Z and conversely :shock:

In place of :sake: I prefer

Hi Aelin, I hope Wings is behaving better! Here is another approach I tried after watching these tutorials











The pictures lists the commands I used. Bend was quite easy after several tries, the first bend was the entire cone and a second bend was just the top. The Bend command only appears when points are selected.


Put On was a little harder to get right. Select a face on the object to clone then open the context menu and start Put On with a right click. Select 3 faces on the trunk and then execute put on with a right click. Turn the branch 180 and move, then repeat. I first tried to put on all six branches but the three on the opposite side of the truck were upside down - I don't know why :)  There is another benefit to cloning, if you UV map the object to be cloned, then all the clones will share the same UV map. At the end you can combine all the pieces into object. I hope this gives you some more ideas, have a great day!!!

:yes:
but when it all makes sense you have had way too much :sake: :sake: :sake: :odd:

 :yeow: Cones... I have totally forgotten their existence :shock:
Yeah, I learnt the other day to bend thanks to the first video  :toast: He is a great teacher, 'cause it's him who has videos for "the dock".

Bend things is good for me. But bridge between 2 bended things is not really good.
I don't talk to do "leaves" for the Corinthian capital :OMG: I tried again this morning, diverting the tuto for the gun to create a "shape" of leaf; it was horrible, and impossible to add 2 on the bended part with success, because they were one in the other in a :panic: way.

So I believe I'll try only to add a texture for this time. Alas flat columns on teh top, but it's the better thing to do.
Maybe a play with bump or displacement black/grey/white could help on this. I'll see.

 :ty01: again for your help!

Not sure I understand, maybe if you post a screenshot. IDid you try the put on command? Always many ways to things but only some work :)

Sorry for the later answer. When I posted my previous message, I had already removed my W3D saved files.
I have always not the "click" to do the sculpture correctly. I have things around columns, and for the moment I try to find brushes approchaing for them. But alone I found are in .ai and I haven't Illustrator :psycho: :shock: :thud: So I must take shapes of ornaments, then created by myself the brushes.
On a good note, I found also brushes in relations with corinthian capitales. Maybe I can improve my first texture for this one.

Finally I was back to follow the "gun tutorial" for another shape, less complicated.
I'm not sure I'll be able to do a corinthian capital, but I'll have maybe a better approach.
Specially like I have understood I missed the orthogonal view previously :rouge:

And no minions to eat it? lol

I'm pretty sure this time I'll be able to do the shape around. It's inside that is a big "?".

I'm not in Tweak mode no, but I saw she has a different way to move points compared to me indeed.
I prefer for the moment the move X, move Y like I do, even if it takes more time. I'm forced to keep my concentration.

A banana, at least you could identify it! Normally what I make can't be lol


Aelin, Tweak will let you move a group of point at the same time and it is similar to sculpt mode which you have used, so I don't think it would take long for you to lean it.
